Deleting an SDDC

Delete (terminate) an SDDC in VMware Solution.

Deleting an SDDC removes the SDDC's associated instances and boot volumes. With a failed SDDC, you can also delete all of its associated networking resources. These resources include the subnet and its route table and security list, and the VLANs and their route tables and NSGs. A networking resource can’t be deleted if that resource is used by another SDDC or networking resource. A networking resource in use will remain after the SDDC is terminated.


Termination removes the SDDC and its associated resources. Terminated resources can’t be restored.
    1. Open the navigation menu, click Hybrid, and then click VMware Solution.
    2. Click the name of the SDDC you want to delete. If you don’t see the SDDC listed, ensure that the correct compartment is selected.
    3. Click Terminate.
    4. Follow the prompt to confirm termination, and click Terminate all.
  • Use the sddc delete command and required parameters to terminate the SDDC and remove its associated resources:
